Here is the story of white men in Africa before colonialism. Brave and foolhardy, amiable and eccentric, these gentlemen made journeys into the 'dark continent' as voyages to other planets would be taken today. Through their letters, diaries and memoirs Christopher Hibbert pieces together a fascinating picture of danger and discovery, of habitual cruelty and unexpected kindnes, of travellers' tales that were stranger than fiction. Includes an Index. "Christopher has done well to compress a hundred years of discovery into one thoroughly readable volume." - The Times

(Key Words: Christopher Hibbert, Africa, Exploration, Zanzibar, Slaves, Timbuktu, Mandingo, Niger River, David Livingstone, Richard Lander, Hugh Clapperton, Ethiopia, Sir Richard Burton, Heinrich Barth, Arabs).
